As a student I ate breakfast for dinner more often than I ate the previous night’s dinner for breakfast. When you think about it, preparing breakfast for dinner has some real advantages.

Breakfast is often cheaper than most meals and quick to make. It also provides a good excuse to drizzle delicious syrup on your food!

This Grilled Breakfast Sandwich is extra good drizzled with sweet syrup!

And, breakfast often includes healthy fruit like berries and peaches which is great for your overall well-being.

Thanks for stopping by the cafe! Cheers!
